Hello! I just received an offer from Deloitte USDC coming on as a Investigations Senior Consultant @ $110k, $5k signing bonus, 100% remote position (requested) Can Someone explain what benefits are afforded to me? Is the 401k match the same? Recruiter stated 3 weeks and 3 days of PTO…does that mean 18 days or 24 days? Also, can someone clarify the parental leave policy as compared to core? Can these be negotiated? I’ve been a 10 year Special Agent/Federal Agent and Officer with the military. Tx!
I'm a first year analyst and a little fearful of the travel schedule I'll have to adopt in the coming months. From those more seasoned than myself... what are some tips or best practices to deal with the travel?

What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?

Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Why are conservatives so quick to praise the Democratic mayor of Palm Beach County for accusing 60 Minutes of reporting false information while they largely failed to call out the man child for the litany of falsehoods, lies, and misinformation he propagated? You have to call out misinformation on both sides, not just when it pertains to your “team.”
Deloitte moms - does Deloitte’s Lactation Program cover the Elvie or Willow breast pumps? I got Medela Sonata for the first baby but interested in getting Elvies for next.

Advice on picking battles over expenditures for a future child?

Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me.

Maybe one or two of the reporters pretending to care about Biden’s answer to court rebalancing because they’re bored of a blowout race could ask the president or senate republicans about the president of the United States believing that Barack Obama and Joe Biden murdered Seal Team 6. https://twitter.com/UrbanAchievr/status/1316118694385385473?s=20

United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
